lycra added to the blend. We used a lot of this stuff as costumes for
our shows (we were costuming our Rock show in stuff primarily
purchased out of LA, and filling in the gaps with what we could find
locally. The stretch denim allowed for a more fitted look without the
need for actually tailoring, and is now seen in the jeans that have
come out that fit like tights, tapered all the way down the
leg...seriously, the first time I saw them, I wondered how anyone
could get their foot through the leg. These aren't wide-spread right
now, very much a 'niche' item...but it's why the bikini-rise jeans
were able to stay on at all without a belt.
